i usually start by trying to install a couple updates manuall
if that does not work - i unstall 2-3 of the latest updates - then try again
or you can do a system restore to a date it was still ok

I will try to uninstall the latest updates from safe mode to see if it can be fixed that way.

I can't find a way yet to remove the updates. I can boot only into safe mode. In safe mode the don't want to go away.

I already tried sfc,  repair, and system restore. The system restore kept running, and never fully restored the computer. The only solution seems to do a factory reset. I keep this as the last option.
